I have been reading much about pulse power handling in THT resistors. I have concluded that for applications with pulses higher than rated power or voltage (like RC snubbers, or on AC line which may be tested to kV surges), the best to use are carbon and metal oxide. But I could not find any comparison between them.
Does anyone have any afinity for one or the other type ?
This (https://www.digikey.com/eewiki/display/Motley/Resistors) says that metal film are better that carbon type resistors
